La Parde de Haut Bailly Pessac Leognan 2014
This great vineyard in Pessac-Leognan dates at least back to 1530. La Parde is a true second wine and one of the first such wines to be made in Bordeaux in 1967. Grapes are sourced from the estate's young vines. Its soft texture and forward aromas make this a great wine to drink young. Look for silky smooth tannins and elegant yet complex aromas. Rich with beautiful texture and great aging potential. Natural.
Just outside of Bordeaux, Château Haut-Bailly sits in a 74-acre vineyard at the heart of the Graves region. Under the new leadership of Robert Wilmers and the management of Veronique Sanders, Chateau Haut-Bailly develops wines in a distinctive style that combines classicism with modernity. Haut-Bailly has silky smooth tannins and elegant yet complex aromas. Rich with beautiful texture and great aging potential.
VM92: The 2014 La Parde de Haut-Bailly is a generous, juicy wine. Red cherry, plum, spice and herbal notes all flesh out in the glass. Succulent and inviting, the 2014 is a terrific choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Silky tannins add to the wine's finesse and sheer appeal.
JS90: This has some nice sweet red-fruit aromas, but is a bit on the dry, tannic side. A solid Pessac-Léognan nonetheless. Second wine of Haut-Bailly.
